49. Sway by Zachary Lazar...

March 11, 2009
Sway entwines a melting pot of characters whose paths cross in the 60's, including a young Rolling Stones, a drifter, a film-maker, and a psychopath. The story unfolds with Bobby Beausoleil and Charles Manson. Apparently Bobby doesn't fit in so well with Charlie's followers. It then cuts to the very beginnings of the Rolling Stones, with Mick, Keith, and Brian practicing covers in a dingy moldy flat. And then goes back & forth, with the film-maker, Kenneth Anger, in between...

I'm not quite sure how to continue. I'm certain that many of you would like, or even love, the story. I made it through Part Two (172 pages). I don't know if I just wasn't in the mood, or if there were too many storylines - that required too much attention? - but that's it. I can only read so much about characters tripping all the time! My brain's like, hello! Quit that sh1t!!! And though the descriptions were vivid, they didn't pull me in. I didn't particularly care for any of them. *sigh*

This is the 3rd book I didn't feel like finishing this year, and the first that I actually put down. I kinda feel bad about it, too. But I have too many books in by TBR pile, to spend precious time finishing a book I don't feel like reading anymore. You know there's trouble when I pick up another book while reading one. I'm usually monogamous. And yet I've finished Kitty #3, and am halfway through New Moon, all since yesterday evening.

And because this could just be a reflection of where I'm at, check out the preview available on Amazon before you make a buying decision. Just click on the cover above.
